Some of my Monday will be taken by a small operation (it’s OK, unlikely to kill me). So Tuesday will be a crush. Please could I leave AHB and DRT in charge of set-up?

Julian - Good luck

Derek - I am around from about 3pm and more than happy to assist with decanting and set up if you would like?

Alex - my early availability on the day also means I would be free to check out the BBR pop up too, so I hope to see you there before the tasting.

May I ask that a treasure trove of pre-poured (or at least decanted) Port not long be left unguarded?

Afternoon all, just to let you know I shall also be bringing a 1968 Sandeman (a leftover from the Sandeman Masterclass) that was double decanted at Sandeman cellars last Monday and re-sealed. Will be good to see how well a double decanted wine lasts and obviously a nice comparison for the 68 Malvedos too. see you all later.
